On vigilantism

By johnboy 20 September 2010 24

There’s been a fair bit of chat about the white van driving Tuggeranong man who caught, assaulted, and robbed a 14 year old boy who’d been throwing eggs at cars on Erindale Drive.

So now we’re adding a poll on it to see where community attitudes lie.

Where is your favourite Pho restaurant in Canberra?

Oh noes, scary egg put a huge dent in my tissue paper van. How do you all crack eggs at home without incurring enormous insurance bills, you poor, fragile, dew-eyed little butterflies?

Think again WMC..

Because of its protective composition, egg whites are used for several purposes, including waterproof glue, so it’s easy to understand how this part of the egg can dry and then stick to the surface of car paint. If it is not dealt with quickly, it can become extremely difficult to remove from the surface of the car without wet sanding and repainting the damaged area.

No, you were being disingenuous by presenting an absurd example.

I may have been giving an absurd example, but since when has giving an overstated example been an unusual occurrence in any hypothetical?

Having re-read vg’s post, I accept that his inclusion of the word “just” makes it much harder for me to take issue with. The intent of my absurd example was to emphasise a situation where intent could well be the defining factor, not to be disingenuous.

I have to agree about people going on about damage to a car. Sure, an egg might damage paint, if you are unlucky, or don’t wash it off. Maybe, rather then assaulting the kid and taking his phone, he could insisted the child wash the car for him.

I asked for clarification.

No, you were being disingenuous by presenting an absurd example.

What does one wrong + one right equal Jim? 😉

You don’t seriously think that stealing money and a mobile phone is ‘right’?

If they do not add up to the cost of repairing the damage done to the car no, he should have taken a pound of flesh too.
